I’m a little confused about the automatic recovery of the connections in RabbitMQ java client.
Consider the following code
ConnectionFactory factory; factory.setAutomaticRecoveryEnabled(true); Connection connection = factory.newConnection(); Channel chan_obj = conn.createChannel();
As per RabbitMQ documentation, if connection drops, then automatically recovery will re-create the connection, re-create the channel etc. I’m really confused about what to do with the ‘chan_obj’ while RabbitMQ automatically recovers. I’m curious if the ‘channel’ created from the connection after the recovery will be usable with the object ‘chan_obj’ Another question is during the recovery process, will I get any notification that channel has closed and hopefully followed by another notification like ‘channel can be used again’.
To cite the documentation
Create a new channel, using an internally allocated channel number. If automatic connection recovery is enabled, the channel returned by this method will be Recoverable.
